Another G1-Skin for the Emulator

Postby Marchu » Sun Oct 12, 2008 1:05 am

For those that want to test the app's on a real G1 look-a-like emulator..

Image Image

This can be done by download the new skin files at:
http://www.jsharkey.org/downloads/G1.zip

And put this in your android sdk directory under tools\lib\images\skins\G1
(just copy the g1 directory in the skins directory)

After that is done, you must start the emulator with: ./emulator -skin G1

p.s.
To get the horizontal view, press CTRL+F12

Cheers

The skin was not made by me, but found at and made by Jeffrey Sharkey.
http://www.jsharkey.org
There where indead some keys that didn't worked, so i did a bug fix on the skin.

There is now only 1 key that not work, because the emulator doesn't allow him.
The menu button on the keyboard works, but not the one on the right side (on the outside of the phone)
But this is only in horizontal view.
I think the emulator allows only 1 menu button. (i couldn't find a key for the second menu button)

The rest of the buttons are working now as suspose to do.

But i cannot put the files in this group, so i will pm them to you.
(maybe you can put the good working skin here)

just copy the G1 map in the skin directory, and overwrite the old G1 map.
(there are also some new .png files, that where needed)

But I don't get it, this is just a skin.. it doesn't emulate the device it show's itself as. So could someone explain the point to me....

Please don't just say 'it looks cool' ... unless thats it lol
